AIAA Houston Section Dinner Meeting

February 21, 2013 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The AIAA Houston Section invites you to save an evening for dinner and a discussion of the Capsule Parachute Assembly System (CPAS) with Mrs. Leah Romero.  Mrs. Romero has participated in 10 CPAS drop tests as the lead analyst on the load train predictions which determine margins of safety for test support equipment.  Currently she is the team lead for implementing the Flight Analysis and Simulation Tool (FAST) and is co-authoring a paper discussing the cutting edge statistical methods CPAS uses to define the parachute model for the 2013 AIAA ADS conference.
